Lena Dunham is supporting the Planned Parenthood Federation of America by selling 169 clothing pieces from her closet. The women’s rights activist and feminist posted her clothes on the RealReal. 70 percent of the proceeds earned from sales will be donated to Planned Parenthood, in a time where the organization is struggling in terms of funding.

“I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally. I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all this good fashion fortune I’ve had and spread it,” said Lena to The New York Times

Louis Vuitton x Supreme

 

New York City Rejects Louis Vuitton x Supreme Pop-Up Store

When Supreme drops hit the streets, expect lines that reach the next block. If it’s the Louis Vuitton x Supreme collab, expect that line to double. Residents of 25 Bond Street did and gave the collab pop-up store a big, fat “No.”

The Manhattan Community Board No. 2 decision read that it “strongly recommends denial” of the pop-up. Apparently, the board already received a storm of emails, expressing outrage against the store.

Furthermore, the community board said that the neither Louis Vuitton nor Supreme provided a sufficient plan to control the 1,000 expected customers nor properly inform surrounding business establishments of the desire to close off the street for the crowd. The board even stressed that the involved parties who failed to “articulate how this product launch will benefit the community in any way.” I guess, something like “Taking your #OOTD game to the next level” doesn’t count as a benefit to the community at large.

Lastly, the board also felt that before anyone tries to set up shop they must be able to prove that they can stop the “unnecessary disturbances that have been plaguing our community for years.”
